Who would have thought that the London transport museum is a good day out in London for families?!!! It is not only just for families but all ages alike. As it is quite a family friendly place my advice is to avoid during peaks times like weekends and school holidays if you can help it. Otherwise just go there first thing in the morning and when it’s about to close. I have been living in London coming to nearly 15 years old. It’s a busy city but a great city to visit as there is always sometime to do.
We were a couple of weeks ago for a weekend of family time as the weather was raining and so we thought we go somewhere indoors. We have bought tickets last year to the London Transport Museum and we have been taking days out with our 4 year old son. My 4 year old son loves going there as there are a few interactive things for him to do there like driving the London bus, traffic lights and pedestrain crossings.
The London Transport Museum itself has got lots of archives in the history of transport in London. So from old wagon carriages to modern day buses and. tubes.
For the parents there a tea and coffee shop and seating area just by the kids play area. So a good place to put your feet and have a few moments while your precious little one is playing away nearby. My son loves the wooden Brio train set just by the tea and coffee seating area. There is also another kids play area upstairs of the tea and coffee seating area.
The cost of a day ticket is very reasonable. Last year prices it was £15 person over 18 years old. Kids go for free. So do get there early especially on weekends opening times are from 10am to 6pm.
Don’t lose the ticket and ask to sign up for annual pass if plan to go there again. Keep the ticket somewhere safe as you will need to bring it next time you go (within one year of course). The annual pass together with a evidence of your signature (credit card or driving license).
The London transport museum also has got another cafe just upstairs by the exit upstairs by the souvenir shop. Where they serve hot food. It is wheel chair friendly and pram friendly place lots of ramps and lifts in the vicinity. More information on the London Transport Museum website https://www.ltmuseum.co.uk/
There is also a souvenir shop plus a restaurant on site. It’s located in Convent Garden so there are plenty of shops and restaurant around. There is also the National Gallery, National Portrait Gallery nearby which have free admission except for short term exhibits.
